The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
Published March 16 2010 Hodder & Stoughton
Sarah Addison Allen is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. This is the second book of hers I have now read and her writing is just...magical. Opening one of Sarah's books is like pulling on your most favourite comfy cardigan and when you start to read time just slips away.
Emily moves to Mullaby, North Carolina to live with her Grandfather following the death of her Mother. Her Mother had never spoken of growing up in Mullaby or of the family she left there, and for good reason. Emily's Mother uncovered Logan Coffey's family secret - in front of the whole town.
This event would never be forgiven and so Emily's reception from the residents of Mullaby is not exactly warm. Soon Emily finds herself with more questions than answers but in small towns, secrets don't stay secret for long.
The Girl Who Chased the Moon is delicious - full of warm, loveable characters and a storyline that sparkles. If you are looking to read something different, try this one.
